There are at least 85 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis/industrial hemp. Our hemp extract is rich in non-psychoactive cannabinoids meaning you don’t feel “high”. Mobius botanica’s hemp extract is derived from all natural organic hemp plants locally grown and made in Colorado, USA. These plants are grown for their cannabinoid rich flowers and leaves which is very different than extracting it from hemp plants that are grown for their stalks or seeds, which only contains trace amounts of these beneficial cannabinoids, so that much bigger quantities of plant material are needed to get the same effects.
The United States of America Department of Health and Human Services holds patent 6,630,507 titled ‘Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants’. The Authors say:
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and propylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke or trauma, or in the treatment of neurogenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dimentia.
Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention…
